    Re: Mighty Thor hath smitten Mythtv

    Sorry I haven't tried the patch yet..
    Don't have any affected DVDs.
    Might rent a couple to try.
    MythTV might be interested. MarkK did a lot of work to improve DVD playback.

    Someone is really on to it..

    Owning DVD & Bluray discs does not give or guarantee the right to be able to play them on any equipment.

    There is no such guarantee that your compliant DVD/BD player will work with new discs.
    Your compliant BD player can be permanent shutdown by a BD disc.

    Only windows & OSX are mpeg-la compliant PC OS licensed for DVD/BD playback.

    Re: Mighty Thor hath smitten Mythtv

    I think it is possibly not quite so simple..
    It depends on where the media apps come from & how.

    Std ubuntu packaged applications are built using the shared libraries. run-time shared libs.

    Media apps from external ppa are very likely using self-contained lib packages i.e. compile time linked libraries.

    If you build your media app from source then almost 100% likely to be built from private patched library source. When you build the app you do not install the component libraries.

    i.e MythTV in std ubuntu has a dependency on libdvdnav
    MythTV from 3rd party ppa does not.
    MythTV source code contains a private source copy of libdvdnav/read.

    You can get libdvdnav code from mplayer.hu via svn.
    Need to configure as shared library before make. But this not very helpful.

    If you are using an updated media player that is outside of standard ubuntu packages, you need to download the source code & patch & build.

    download that tarball, and the patch then
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential
    tar -xjf libdvdread-4.1.3.tar.bz2
    cd libdvdread-4.1.3
    patch -p1 <libdvdread-4.1.3.MSB-fix.patch.txt
    ./configure
    make
    sudo make install
    Curious, do you think this process will work on OSX?
    I like to back up my DVDs in case the child gets ahold of them.
    I get this error when I try it...
    Code:
    cd obj && gcc -dynamiclib -Wl,-single_module -Wl,-read_only_relocs,suppress  -ldl -Wl,-soname=libdvdread.so.4 -o libdvdread.so dvd_input.so dvd_reader.so dvd_udf.so ifo_print.so ifo_read.so md5.so nav_print.so nav_read.so bitreader.so
    ld: unknown option: -soname=libdvdread.so.4
    collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
    make: *** [libdvdread.so] Error 1

    The MakeMKV method did work, but talk about a messy process. It would be nice if it was streamlined.

    I tried this but get the following error at sudo make install

    "install -d /usr/local/bin
    install: cannot create directory `/usr/local/bin': File exists
    make: *** [install-dvdread-config] Error 1"

    Thanks

    There is a ppa (for natty andoneiric) for this listed in the comments at https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ad/+bug/852345

    ppa page: https://launchpad.net/~bryce/+archive/lp852345

    I haven't tried this (and it looks like a fix is/will be released soon through the normal channels), but if you're desperate. . .

    Re: Mighty Thor hath smitten Mythtv

    I'd like to thank sixtyfive/Jim and rockyrockrat for the time and helpful instructions. This resolved the issue perfectly for me, although I remain skeptical that this Thor will prove worth the hassle. Future Paramount movies, maybe!

    new to Ubuntu. Tried to figure this out. got to "patch" then this happened.

    patching file src/dvd_udf.c
    Reversed (or previously applied) patch detected! Assume -R? [n]
    Apply anyway? [n] y
    Hunk #1 FAILED at 331.
    1 out of 1 hunk FAILED -- saving rejects to file src/dvd_udf.c.rej

    I said yes. But it says it fails. Does this mean the patch is already applied? If so, I still can't view the video in VLC or Movie Player. It's still scrambled. If not, where did I go wrong Linux pros? Anything else I can do? Thanks. Any help is appreciated. I've been at this for a couple of hours today and last night. So frustrated.

    I sux at Linux but I still love it!
